20th International Conference on
Applied Cryptography and Network Security

Instructions for Online Authors

Presentations of online and in-person authors will alternate according to the scheduling of every session. Each presentation is expected to last up to 20 minutes, followed by 5-10 minutes of Q&A. The time schedule can change for workshop authors, so be sure to also check workshop guidelines.

The Zoom platform will be used during the conference and workshops to make online authors attend and interact with in-person participants.

Since chairs aim to deliver a consistent online experience to the conference audience, online authors should also provide a pre-recorded video of their presentation as a backup resource in case of technical issues during the conference.

Online authors should also provide a very short description of their presentation video. This is limited to 1,024 characters (which includes spaces).

Instructions for recording the video of the presentation

Here is a basic step-by-step tutorial on making a professional video for presentation talks. For additional hints: ASIA-CCS20 Video Presentations

The video is supposed to be recorded with Zoom and shared with the organizers before the conference dates.

  • Download Zoom (https://zoom.us/download) and install the Zoom Client for Meetings.

  • Create a Zoom account if needed.

  • Turn on Automatic recording after signing in to your Zoom account on the webpage. Click Settings -> Recording.

  • Start a new meeting

  • Video/audio: make sure that you are using a computer with a camera (either an embedded front-face camera or a connected camera) and microphone (built-in or connected).

  • Select the correct options (Video and Audio) in the Settings in the Zoom client.

  • Start the application for slides presentations such as PowerPoint or Keynote. Open the Zoom client and sign in to your account. Click New Meetings. Make sure that local recording starts automatically. If not, you can manually turn it on.

  • Make sure your microphone is not muted and the video recording is started.

  • Click Share Screen and select the presentation application, e.g., PowerPoint or Keynote.

  • Do not share the entire desktop. Do not select Share computer sound or Optimize Screen Share for Video Clip.

  • Self-introduction: At the beginning of your video, introduce yourself. For instance, you can say something like: My name is ... . I am a PhD candidate at the University of ... . The paper I will be presenting today is titled ... .

  • The video you are recording should always include a small picture-in-picture window with you inside to make it look professional.

  • Play your video several times to make sure that it is within 15-20 minutes for Paper submissions.

  • When done, send an email to the Chair with the link to your recorded meeting, which can be found on your Zoom account web page

  • Some additional tips for a good presentation:

  1. Keep it simple and avoid too many technical details.

  2. Best first: start your presentation with the most important/exciting point.

  3. Use figures and examples wisely.

  4. Keep a good pace and use a timer to help.
